Javascript + iTunes

The other day I found out this post. Thanks to the examples javascript (or more accurately jscript) provided in the post I learned to write my own javascripts to manage muy iTunes library. Here’s the result a script to find out files under the “iTunes Music” folder that are not present in the iTunes library. It helpful we you mess up the library (I used the “Consolidate library” feauture and ended up with tons of duplicated files in the hard drive that didn’t show up the iTunes interface).

PHP Proxy and iTunes

It seems that the company I’m working on has blocked They have categorized it as entertaiment/radio so I cannot access the podcasts from Java Posse at work. I’m sync my iPod with the ITunes at work so I cannot hear them anymore. Because I’m not happy with the situation I tried to overcome the blocking using my connection at home, so after googling a little bit I found PHP Proxy that allows to access other sites throught it.

9 hours later...

Today I read another bit of Akira. I’m starting to think that it will take ages to finish the book. Anyway the sentence was: 9時間後 第三次世界大戦が 勃発した that in romaji is read: “kyuu jikan go dai san ji sekai taisen ga boppatsushita” and my translation is “9 hours later the Third World War outbroke” to translate the sentence I needed to search all this kanjis: kanji- on’yomi kun’yomi - english 時 – JI – toki/-doki - time 間 – KAN/KEN - aida/ma/ai - interval 後 – GO/KOU – nochi/ushiro/ato/okureru - after 第 – DAI/TEI - - No.

About a month ago I saw a book title “Japonés en viñetas” (Japanese in comic) in the FNAC bookstore. I was attracted by the title and after peeking at it I’ve found it interesting and decided to buy it and give Japanese a try. I’m of the impulsive kind. So after reading the book, which gives an good introduction to Japanese I decided to buy a book in Japanese and try to read it.
